From TheTea

Origin: Menghai, Yunnan, China.

Vintage: 1999

Cultivar: Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica

Age of trees: plantation trees (probably young)

This famous recipe from 1985 is still produced by big Yunnan factories. This is a cake which I call “8582 style” cause it was not made in any famous national factory – I am sure it’s from small private factory but its style is inspired by famous Menghai Factory recipe. The raw material is marked as lowish 8th grade, this recipe is perfect for long term storage. This is the reason that 8582 pu-erh is popular amongst tea lovers, especially from Hong Kong. This particular 8582 Sheng Pu-Erh is a perfect example of very good quite humid Taiwan storage. The tea was matured in natural taiwanese environment (not too dry, but not so humid like Hong Kong storages) and this is the reason why it is still so potent and vivid. When you brew our 1999 8582 Sheng you will find great sweetness, vibrant texture, pleasant bitterness and long lasting aftertaste. The flavor developing in the mouth and nose is full of wood, honey and sweet apple skin notes mixed with something like dried fruits (pears, apples …). The Qi is quite strong, refreshing and stimulating.
